Well I guess it pays to get a new computer after all...lol

We had gone to the grocery to get some last minute stuff for dinner, when the clerk at the grocery store was unloading some beautiful roses into the display and they were ORANGE! I know it's a repeat but it seems to work ;)

I had done my shoot in the am, went to Disney for the Osborn lights and made it home to finish loading up my software programs. I hadn't even looked at my pictures until about 2 hours before roll over...

Thank you so much for your votes....

Ja-9

And yes Waddy, I did use my 12mm extension tube for this...makes for a superb macro!!!

You know what's funny about this, I can't ever recall actually seeing a rose I thought really qualified as "orange", but here one is. I'm assuming from your notes the color is "real"... Not the most imaginative shot, but very well-executed and truly soothing to contemplate. Congrats on ribbon!

You made this rose into a swirling ballet of color and form. I'm guessing that you may have used one of those extension tubes too.
Beautiful, and congrats on your new ribbon.
